. interesting conversation you had with the former president, bill clinton. >> he is the one who sort of called me about this originally. i have talked to him many times the years. i have never heard him quite like this he lost two friends -- two friends lost their sons within a few days of each other due to this problem, accidental deaths due to prescription drug overdose. i talked to him about several things related to, they really wanted to talk, don about this issue. i wanted you to hear a small part of what he said. >> okay. >> 80% of the world's pain prescriptions are in this country. 80%. does that surprise you? >> i didn't know that. no, because -- >> that a cultural problem? >> it is cultural. people think, i have got a headache or i have got this or my elbow is sore, whatever, and look, i don't want to minimize, there are a lot of people who live courageous lives in constant pain. but there's no question that since we represent 5% of the world's people, we got no business popping as many pills as we do. >> how did we get to the point we consume, collectively, so many painkillers, so m
